International Relations & Organisations Academy
The nature of the changing relations between states and non-state actors and the functioning of the international system – the forces, factors and interests, the customs, rules, norms, institutions and organisations from which the theory and history of its development are formed is a highly relevant and interesting area of study. In light of the current political climate and tensions in international relations, the study of International Organisations is becoming more and more important. Our world is ‘smaller’ due to the close political, business and economic ties between countries. In such a globalised world, cooperation through International Organisations such as the United Nations, NATO, African Union, Association of South-East Asian Nations, European Union, Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, and the North-American Free Trade Area is crucial.
The International Relations and International Organisations Academy provides insight into how the international community works, heightened by studying alongside delegates from a wide range of countries. The course will introduce an extensive array of International Organisations and the way they work, while considering the international system of territorial states which acknowledge no superior authority over matters which they consider of vital interest. The International Relations and International Organisations Academy is the ideal programme for learning more about the worldwide institutional network of cooperating countries, how they work, what they do, and how they influence world politics. The course will provide delegates with essential skills in reading widely; evaluating and challenging conventional views; communicating effectively; demonstrating creativity, flexibility and initiative; and working independently while demonstrating attention to detail.

Individual Airport Pick Up & Drop Off Service
On arrival in the UK, we can arrange for an individual private pick up from Heathrow or Birmingham Airport to Oxford. If you are going to Cambridge we can arrange for a pick up service from Heathrow.
At the end of the programme, a private transfer to return to the airport can be arranged.
On arrival and departure days, we operate shuttle services between London Heathrow Airport and Oxford or Cambridge. The shuttle service is by private coach travelling with student groups attending our university-level and high-school programmes. The shuttle drops delegates off at their accommodation. On arrival days, we request that delegates’ flights land before 6pm in order to board the final shuttle bus. Similarly, on departure days, we request that delegates’ flights depart after 2pm. The shuttle service does not include an unaccompanied minor service. If the airline you are travelling with requires this, please speak to a customer service representative at least 2 weeks prior to travel to discuss your travel arrangements. Our Delegate Advisors are present in the arrivals area of major terminals in London Heathrow Airport throughout the arrival day greeting our delegates and ensuring that the shuttle service does not leave until we have made contact with all those who have pre-booked this service. Please note there may be some wait time on arrival at the airport for the shuttle service, and for arrival after 6pm, there may be no shuttle available. This service is only available to and from London Heathrow Airport. The shuttle service is none refundable and it cannot be changed to a VIP airport pick up or drop off service.
The cost of this service is 50GBP for a return journey.
If you require a VIP airport pick up or drop off service this must be requested 4 weeks prior to the start of the programme. For room upgrades the same rule applies. You must request it 4 weeks before the programmes starts. This can only be booked upon availability.
